Immigrant-kids shelter at Lackland closed down

The Department of Health and Human Services has closed its emergency shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.
The last four children were moved to permanent shelters Wednesday, said Kenneth Wolfe, deputy director in the department's office of public affairs.
At its height, the barracks on Lackland held 300 children, part of an influx that forced the agency to open five emergency shelters in Texas. All were closed in recent weeks, Wolfe said.
Since October, the agency has seen 8,541 unaccompanied children, exceeding the total number in fiscal 2011. The department has opened new permanent, state-certified shelters and expanded existing facilities, Wolfe said.
